The entire Pro Git book, written by Scott Chacon and Ben Straub and published by Apress, is available at the links below. Only the bold ones have been “juiced”, so far all of them by Giampaolo.

Should you be interested in juicing some of the remaining links, please write to me (easy email, composed with first name {at}}, and I will incorporate your juiced version and cite you. They can be juiced by going to the original link that you want to tackle and creating the Kjuicer version through the extension or the bookmarklet. Extension and bookmarklet can be found at the Kjuicer website, and here a short video that explains what this is.
